The Palencia surname is the patronymic or plural form of Palazzo; which is a habitational name, created a place name such as Palazzo Adriano in Palermo province, Sicily; Palazzo San Gervasio in Potenza province; or possibly from Palazzo Canavese in Turin province. These place names are all rooted in the Italizn word "palazzo," which means "palace."

Palencia Early Origins



The surname Palencia was first found in Milan (Italian: Milano, Milanese: Milan), the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. The two palaces in the Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Reale and the palace of the archbishops are notable. The city is rich in art, museums, galleries and sights. Castello Sforzesco stands in the Parco. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The family are recorded in Milano in 1277.
